The Gulf Open Water Championships were held in Manvel Tx at Twin Lakes Scuba Park on September 25th.  We had four swimmers that participated in the event in several  distances.

Karl Nolte(9) finished 8th overall in the 10 & under boys category for the 800.

Emma Clark(13) also swam the 2 mile race and finished 6th overall in the 13-14 girls age group. –first time at this event.

It was great to see these athletes try new things and experience something new. Karl was our only returning swimmer and Grace, Ava and Emma all were first timers.  Dads Club is proud of our open water swimmers.  Congratulations Gang!
